What is micellar water?

Micellar water is a clear liquid that looks just like water. But this isn't your typical glass of H2O. What makes micellar water special (and gives it is name) are tiny molecules called micelles. Like a magnet, micelles capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin perfectly clean, hydrated and refreshed without over-drying. It can be used on all skin types.

Why have I never heard of this miracle product before?

Micellar water was developed in Paris, France as a solution to the faucet water that was extremely harsh on the skin. It was developed as a product to replicate water on the skin and as a way for women to cleanse their skin without having to rinse with water afterward.

Why is micellar water so effective with waterproof mascara?

The micelles in micellar water really bind to make-up on the skin, including waterproof mascara. Give Garnier's All in 1 Waterproof Make Up Remover a try, it's specially formulated to remove even the most stubborn waterproof mascara.

How do I best incorporate micellar water into my skin care routine?
